Literacy musical: Space Jump
This production has now finished touring.
For our current equivalent productions please visit our literacy page.
What is going on with Claire and why is she acting so spaced out? Everything she has been saying and doing today just doesn’t add up. To make matters worse there are times when Oliver feels like everything that is going on has happened before. How can it be that two friends that have known each other for so long suddenly feel like they’re worlds apart?
Join Claire and Oliver (and two crazy scientists!) as they fly from book to book on their adventure of galactic proportions!
Our brand new literacy musical shows how interacting with books and our imagination can can expand our horizons and explores how looking for things we have in common with others can create all kinds of opportunities.
This sensational musical adventure is written to encourage children to engage with reading in an active and energetic manner. It features four popular books which you can read and explore with the children:
- The Way Back Home by Oliver Jeffers
- The Green Ship by Quentin Blake
- The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis
- Belonging by Jeannie Baker*

Activity pack and songs the children can learn
Space Jump is a great catalyst for engaging children with stories that they can enjoy both before and after the show itself. The children will love the show on its own, but our free activity pack and sing-a-long versions of the songs help make it easy to incorporate the stories into your lessons as well.
